Great service and attention from staff with requests. Shrimp salad had the perfect amount of spice and chicken wrap with fries was inhaled.

I thought chili's was bad Jake's could be the worst restaurant I have ever had the displeasure of eating in. The food was cold. The service was nonexistent. Trying to use a Groupon was nearly impossible. I think American Greed has taken over here also. Jake's was a great place to go in the past but the last 2 times... More

Went to Jake's for brunch after church on Sunday and was pleasantly surprised by the buffet that had both breakfast offerings and dinner options. Plenty of bacon, sausage, Eggs Benedict, cheesy hashbrowns, beef tips in brown gravy, chicken, peel and eat shrimp, salads, French toast, caramel rolls, omelettes made to order. Fresh, delicious food, and service was good. Clean too.... More

Restaurants near malls are always suspect, but Jakes is different. The staff is friendly and the food is good. Cedar plank salmon salad: wonderful. I'd go here again and again.

I used to come to Jake's quite regularly for the Happy Hour specials and have many fond memories of the good food and great atmosphere! I picked up a Groupon to celebrate my fiancé's birthday as I wanted something nice/low-key on a Monday night as we had pre-celebrated BIG all weekend. I was excited to have him experience the Jake's... More

I came here to eat with friends and was made to wait for over an hour. The place wasn't even busy!!! Never eating here again. I can't believe that when it is my birthday, they treat me this way.

We had a large group of 11 people. Waitress was very efficient getting us our drinks and taking our orders. I didn't hear any complaints about the food-in fact, just compliments which is unusual for a group of 11 women. I had the Steak Special-12 oz. steak with baked potato and salad. Had enough steak to take home with me.... More

Have been there for drinks and appetizers and was pleased. However, went for lunch with my husband and I had walleye sandwich which was not done. When I told my server, there was no offer to replace or not make me pay. I was also dissatisfied with how long it took to receive our food… and it was not busy!

Very good attentive service and good salads. The chicken chopped salad with caramelized pecans was excellent. Non-stop refills on our soda. Will definitely return.
